"As a side note, I would like to say that there is absolutely no airbrushing or digital manipulation in the photos on this page. The magic of these photos is the meticulously planned image alignment. I shot these using film, locking the camera to a tripod and then taking two photos one after the other."
I, for one, welcome our new human-mannequin-hybrid overlords

That is, in fact, the coolest everything ever.
If only Kim Cattrall had been involved.
I, for one, am weary of our cliche'd Kent Brockman quote overlords.
It's a perfectly cromulent idiom.
I was wondering where the phrase structure came from.
*An ant floats past the camera*
"Ladies and gentlemen, uh, we've just lost the picture, but what we've seen speaks for itself. The Corvair spacecraft has apparently been taken over- 'conquered' if you will- by a master race of giant space ants. It's difficult to tell from this vantage point whether they will consume the captive Earthman or merely enslave them. One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves." -- Kent Brockman
"...I would like to say that there is absolutely no airbrushing or digital manipulation in the photos on this page."
"...I had to accept the fact that using a computer to merge the two shots was going to be the easiest way for me to materialize the final result."
I'm sorry. What?
It's just a photo collage-- two photos put next to each other-- but the collage was created via computer. The edges and images weren't manipulated, just put next to each other.
So you, like the artist, are stipulating that "digital manipulation" and "combining two photographs using computer software" are dissimilar?
What he's trying to say is that he did the hard part in the camera, not in Photoshop. Move along.

That pinkie amputation thing definitely would have been easier in Photoshop.
